On Wednesday Sarah was ill, Lucy had a lazy day.

We visited Auschwitz on Thursday, there really isn't much we can say.

We didn't do anything for the rest of the day.

On Friday we wondered through the old streets of Krakow, buying squashy dragons along the way. We went to the Salt Mines in the afternoon. They were special, very special.
Apparantly the statues were built by the miners a looooong time ago, around the 17th centuary. We were very suspicious - they could only use candals for light, some of the 'statues' were plastic, some of the statues were gnomes, there were convinient places for the electric lights to illuminate them, and apparently they carved them after a full day working in the mine, instead of going hooome.
We both still bought authentic wolly 'mining' hats.
After a shot of Polish vodka (Lucy was asked for her ID) we headed for the surface in the terrifying 'lift', paprika crisps keeping us company.
The journey back was loooooooooong, Sarah rewarded herself with breaded fish and ketchup (served in an ice cream wafer pot) for supper, Lucy's wasn't much better. yum.
Then we emigrated to a cafe a few doors down and had profiterols and cocktails while we watched people with fire poi.
